This was my first ever partial mash beer. The very first brewing it won 3rd place in my local homebrew competition in the Stout/Porter category. I have since brewed it all grain and made only a few small tweaks. I feel it is much improved since the first brewing. I plan to enter it again as it has been a couple of years. This is a really nice smooth stout. More towards the sweet side of things. A really enjoyable viscous mouthfeel with voluptuous body. The roast is mellow and hops are only there for balance. A lovely after dinner pint, or breakfast of course!



Here it is in all its dark creamy glory.

Here it was the first time around. Note the head was a bit rockier, not as creamy.

Is it me, or are the oats from this oatmeal stout invisible?

Not a problem, I had to re-read it three times to make sure it wasn't my eyes acting up late at night.

Thanks folks for pointing out my omissions. I wish I could just transfer the recipe from my brewing software, but I have not figured out how yet.

No worries! I'll check back later! This recipe sounds awesome, and I'm pretty sure I've got all the ratios figured out (provided my math is good :-/) I'm thinking about throwing some home-made candied pecans into the mash.
